What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

The Abtronic electronic fitness system is designed to exercise your muscles while you relax. You simply put on the conductive gel and put on the Abtronic belt. While you watch television or do housework, the Abtronic system uses electronic stimulation to tighten and release your muscles.

The Abtronic belt uses EMS technology (Electronic Music Stimulation) and feasibly could work on any part of the body as long as the belt physically fits.

List of Ingredients

Not applicable.

Product Features

The system has 10 different intensity levels so that you can gradually increase your exercise as you make progress.

The Abtronic system also has 6 different exercise programs, so that you can get a balanced workout.

Each system comes with a 4 ounce bottle of firming and toning gel as well as a 2 ounce bottle of activating gel.

Advantages

  • The system could hypothetically allow you to exercise while doing other things or even while relaxing.
  • The Abtronic system is very portable and takes up very little space.
  • The product is available for as little as $60.

Disadvantages

  • In 2002, the Abtronic company lost a large court case for faulty advertizing. Quite simply, the court determined that the system did not fulfill the promises that the company marketed, such as getting a six-pack without exercising, or the assertion that using the machine for 10 minutes is the same as 600 sit-ups.
  • In the present, it is scientifically questionable whether the product actually works. Many people do not feel that the product worked the muscles at all. Even if it does work muscles some, it clearly does not give comparable exercise to a genuine workout as the company once claimed.
  • The system uses “passive” muscle stimulation, meaning that you will burn only a few calories. You cannot expect the Abtronic system to help with abdominal fat. At the most, it can only somewhat help to strengthen your muscles. Dealing with fat requires you to use more calories than you consume, and the Abtronic system is not a help for that goal.
  • Because of the court case, the Abtronic system is no longer available new. However, many previous owners are more than happy to sell their used models for a greatly reduced price.
  • Based on the scientifically questionable basis of the system, it is reasonable to ask how healthy or safe extensive use of the system actually is.

Conclusion

The Abtronic fitness system is clear evidence that fitness only comes through hard work. Many people who purchased the system in 2001 and 2002, now feel that they were cheated. It is possible that electronic muscle stimulation could be somewhat effective, but it can never be a substitute for legitimate exercise. Many products such as thermogenic fat burners can help, but fitness always requires good nutrition and consistent exercise. There are no effortless shortcuts.

    Just watching on a purely advertising channel on TV in Australia, and that’s why I’m checking out your site – yup, they’re advertising for sale, brand new abtronics, with slightly hard to read riders on how much you should do other things to actually get that six pack. Oh, and there’s some female body building champ. who is also plugging it…

    How can you in one sentence say that the abtronic belt doesn’t work and tell us that this other brand which is dearer I might add works?
    I think there is enough rubbish out there.
    Listen people.
    If you want to loose that belly or have abb’s like the hulk, there is something on the market that is free and will actually save you money.
    Want to know what it is???
    Here it is in a nutshell.

    STOP STUFFING YOUR FACE WITH CRAP!!!
    Maintain a healthy diet and do dome exercises.
    That’s it. No special get fit quick crap.
    Save money cause you eat less and get fit at the same time.
    I personally use my old bull worker to aid in my training at home and that works well but I have to use it !!
    Any of these devices like abb king pro and so on work if you use them but so does training at home without them.
    Bottom line , you have to get off your butts !!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Asking questions are actually good thing if you are not understanding something totally, however this paragraph presents good understanding even.

    While getting a bunch of quality protein, you also have to get good dietary fats into your body. It is a great idea to close your Wells Fargo Bank account if you are facing bankruptcy. Indeed, how many “large structures” made of wood have survived largely intact for almost 5,000 years.

    I have the Abtronic x2 and have for about 2weeks. I’m sceptical about it trimming you down I wouldn’t buy it for that reason only. From my brief experience I’m using it about 3-4 hrs a day and as well as a good massage it has definitely helped with my severe back problem. I think it will increase the strength of your core muscles but to lose weight the only way is hard work and a good diet. I’ve had bad back probs for years and I can say it has 150% helped to relax my issues. For that I totally recommend. Hope that helps

    So, this system that i used three years ago for 3 months that gave me my sixpack and now i am starting to use it again, immideately see a big difference after just 2 days, (notice that i spent 3-4 hours using it at strenght lvl 6-7 ). and the only other thing i do is walk to school and spend the rest of the day as a sofa pig. but nah, its probably the hard excercise i perform that gives me my sixpack….

    [Reply]

    Anonymous

    I agree with guest329. used it for 30mins daily on every part that i need to tone. level1-4 is like a massage. if you want results go 5 or higher. I just found mine last week and been using it again. Reason why i looked it up now is that i need to buy the gel. ive been using waterbased lotion for now but not as good as the gel it came with.

    The Abtronic– It took 45 minutes to figure out how it worked, the gel pads come unsnapped every time you remove the belt, the gel pad attached to the pads then either stick to the skin?? The become a garbled mess when you try and remove them. After 45 minutes I never was able to get any vibration at all from this product?? I returned this product.
